In this workshop participants will explore the expeditionary learning approach with a social justice lens; this approach cultivates brilliant minds. The expeditionary learning approach is a way to provide opportunities for young people to experience learning in an adventurous way! A learning expedition is a journey, and at the end of the journey, youth are enlightened and more likely to contribute to a better world. Expeditionary learning cultivates critical thinkers. Participates will complete the workshop with an expedition learning toolkit that they can use for youth programming.
